The contractor will upgrade structural parts, engines, cockpit, and avionics of Orlik TC-I trainers to add decades of operational life.

The upgraded aircraft, designated Orlik TC II Advanced, will join the existing fleet of 20 aircraft between mid-2019 and October 2020.

The Swedish Defence and Material Administration has awarded a Gripen E contract worth SEK400m ($47.68m) to Saab.

The new-build aircraft are intended for use by the Swedish Air Force.
